I've started a new blog on this topic at http://futureplanets.blogspot.com/

This blog supplements UMSF by allowing on topic discussions that include politics and other topics not appropriate here.

The first entry is up with some additional news on the MSL funding and schedule problems.

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

Several new posts on at FuturePlanets. This week's entries focused on a possible Galilean Satellite Observer that would be an expansion of the proposed Ganymede Observer. The Galilean Satellite Observer would be a fallback if budgets don't allow for the Jupiter Europa Orbiter.
